Nayandahalli Station Should Be Improved

Southern most station of Bangalore, Nayandahalli needs to be developed to offload the load on SBC. Currently, the people of southern Bangalore travelling towards Mysore need to go all the way upto City Station paying hefty amount to autos, stand in very long queues (sometimes miss the train because of not getting the ticket in time) and then take up travel. Hence most of the south bangaloreans take up buses from satellite bus stand.

Feedback on airport tree-corridor idea

Mrs Janet Yegneswaran of the Tree-for-free trust doesn’t share my enthusiasm for a green corridor to the Bangalore international airport. “Sorry, it’s not possible,” she wrote back, saying she has enough hassles already, of having to deal with the municipal authorities for providing tree guards to her roadside saplings. Planting saplings along airport highway entail large scale maintenance; would require lots of tree-guards (which, incidentally, cost more than saplings). And who takes responsibility for watering the saplings? comment guidelines
